NFL sells Pro Bowl jerseys with a hefty $175 price tag

Jan 29, 2016 at 2:50 PM--


For some time now, fans have complained about the prices of Nike NFL merchandise since they took over as the official league outfitter from the already overpriced Reebok. Game jerseys, which are replica jerseys that feature screen printed names and numbers on them, have a recommended retail price of $99.99. Limited jerseys, which are of higher quality and feature stitched tackle twill name and numbers, have a recommended retail price of $149.99. Elite jerseys, which are similar to the ones worn by the players during games, have a recommended retail price of $294.99. At those prices, it's easy to see why cheaper knock-off jerseys are so popular.

If you were planning on picking up a NaVorro Bowman Pro Bowl jersey (No love for Joe Staley who does not have a jersey available) at these same prices, think again. Pro Bowl jerseys that feature screen printed names and numbers on them, the same style that runs $99.99 for team versions, will cost you a recommended retail price of $174.99. You read that correctly. That's $25 more than the higher quality Limited jerseys available.

You may love Bowman, but do you love him enough to pay those kinds of prices?

The annual AFC-NFC all-star game will take place on Sunday, January 31 at 4 PM Pacific. This will be Bowman's third Pro Bowl appearance (2012, 2013 and 2015 seasons).

Cam Newton: 49ers' Super Bowl loss due to 'bad coaching'

By David Bonilla

While former NFL quarterback Cam Newton hasn't wavered in his opinions surrounding San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy, who he said played "good enough" for the Bay Area team to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 58, he is directing blame for the loss elsewhere. "Field goal versus touchdown, that's not Brock Purdy," Newton said on his "4th and 1" podcast. "Why the [expletive] did they receive the ball first? It was Tony Romo who mentioned this—when you know what you have to get, now you have four downs to get it, not three." Newton added, "The 49ers, they were just trying to get points. And that is not Brock Purdy's fault. That's bad coaching. There was too many people who was exposed. They didn't know the real rules of

Breer: Steve Wilks was already on 'shaky ground' with 49ers heading into Super Bowl

By David Bonilla

While fans were clamoring for his dismissal following some disappointing playoff performances, it seemed unlikely that head coach Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers would part ways with defensive coordinator Steve Wilks after just one season. In fact, on Tuesday, February 13, Shanahan insisted he expected all his coaches to return. A day later, the 49ers head coach jumped on a conference call with reporters and announced that he had decided to fire Wilks. "A really tough decision because it really says nothing about Steve as a man or as a football coach," Shanahan told reporters. "He's exactly what we wanted as a man. He is a great football coach. But just where we're

49ers' Christian McCaffrey reflects on costly fumble in Super Bowl

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers offense took the field first in Super Bowl 58, and for a while there, the unit looked like a well-oiled machine, advancing down the field until the unthinkable happened. The Offensive Player of the Year, running back Christian McCaffrey, fumbled the football after a hit by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Leo Chenal. Defensive end George Karlaftis recovered the football for the Chiefs. Reflecting on the gut-wrenching defeat, McCaffrey remarked, "You just look at the self-inflicted wounds we had, and we just beat ourselves." Although the turnover did not immediately result in points for the Chiefs, it underscored a missed opportunity for the 49ers to capitalize on their strong start. "Like I said, I keep saying
